We’re a collective of writers & natural rebels. Our mission is to discover ideas, places and products that inspire us to live a meaningful life. Since launching in England in 2010, we’ve experienced countless wellness, yoga, spa, and creative retreats, enabling us to build Omkara. Over the years we’ve evolved from reviewing and recommending retreats to clients all over the world, to opening up discussions on art, music, philosophy and so on.
Our retreat directory highlights places that we’ve personally experienced so we know they have an all-round good vibe. Some are spa & wellness retreats and others are just great places to stay, rejuvenate and generate new ideas.
We’ve developed our Mulberry silk eye masks from the years of travelling and experiencing some good and some very bad eye masks along the way so we decided to create our own to assist with relaxation, sleep and travel.
Liz Bonney the founding member of Omkara has spent decades touring in bands, working in film and other creative projects, all of which involved countless late nights. These experiences led her to understand that one of the most sustainable ways to feel confident with your creativity and access the energy required to produce quality results, is to live a healthy lifestyle, at least most of the time, and to be around people and places that allow you to share ideas and find ways to make these ideas come to life.
We aim to deliver discerning, cultivated concepts, rare opportunities and solid recommendations. Please get in touch with us if you wish to know more or if you have an article you would like us to share.
